    Whats wrong with your stock headlights? Best upgrade is a retrofit IMO. The stock headlights are plenty bright though. I'm wondering if your setup might be wrong.

    This is the depo headlights right out of the box, before I did my retrofit on them.

    That's the Apollo shrouds.
    I painted the main reflector black, but left the shrouds chrome.
